Central government gives funding for schools to support pupils from deprived backgrounds. This funding is called the 'Pupil Premium'. It is designed to close the gap in learning and achievement for those children from less advantaged backgrounds. At St Elizabeth, we are committed to ensuring excellence for all pupils. This year, our pupil premium is being used in the following ways:
Numbers Count - supporting early mathematical skills acquisition
Support for access to extra curricular activities
Booster classes in English and Mathematics
Musical instrument tuition
St Elizabeth Primary School
"Striving for excellence in a caring, Catholic community"
SUMMER FETE Our School Summer Fete will be held on Saturday 22nd June 2013. This is such an important event in the life of the school. It brings our community together for an enjoyable, social occasion and at the same time generates extra income for the school. This income helps to meet the costs of a range of trips, extracurricular experiences for the children and equipment which the school otherwise could not afford.
Calling Parents, Staff and Governors! We need your help! We need volunteers with ideas! We are appealing for help from parents as well as staff and governors. This is an ideal opportunity for giving something to the school for the benefit of our children.
TRAVEL PLAN We are in the process of updating our School Travel Plan. Again, we are going for Gold and, to achieve this, we need to demonstrate our serious commitment to promoting sustainable means of travel to school through an increased number of initiatives. We welcome involvement from parents and the community so if you would like to help do please contact Miss Hair, our travel plan co-ordinator, via the school office.

Watch out for information on our other brilliant Parents Workshops organised by Sue Braniff. You may be aware that the Nursery has taken over the Community House whilst work is underway for the new nursery. All parent classes will run from the ICT suite situated in the school building, next to the library. Please feel free to call in to access information or to use a computer. Our flower arranging class by Prafula was very much enjoyed. More photos.
